“This is the story of the mother who dreamt of the birth of her child.
But unfortunately black hands who called themselves police, who had no conscience or human rights or understanding towards a pregnant woman, deprived me of my dream.
My story begins on a cold night on 2 September 2020, on the beach we were trying to leave from to go to Britain.“
So begins the letter of R Sharif, mother of Aleksandra H.
Aleksandra was born on 2/9/20, following a premature birth, and subsequently died 5/9/20 of perinatal anoxia.
We stand in solidarity with the family, for which her death was by no means an accident.
Aleksandra’s family, the mother heavily pregnant, was intercepted on a beach by the police as they were about to cross to the UK by boat. R.’s waters broke and, despite calls for help, the police did not get her any medical attention. Instead the family was kepts on the beach and in the cold for hours. Only after another police patrol passed by in the morning was she then taken to the hospital. It proved too late for Aleksandra to survive.
The parents have since filed a legal complaint, that is now in the hands of justice. After the first letter from the mother, and an answer from the prefecture, here’s a statement in support of the family from friends and associations.
